Webinar: Research and Information Fluency


Teaching students to strategically navigate massive amounts of information that is available through multi-media has become a priority as we increase our demand for incorporation of evidence and reasoning in student work. And not only do students need to know how to strategically navigate and evaluate information from multiple media formats, they need to be able to use that media to strategically and collaboratively share information as well. Does how we teach ‘research’ need to change? How has it evolved?

STEM in the Primary Classroom


Young children are avid STEM investigators, eager to explore and invent. Spend five minutes with a 3- to 8-year-old and you will field an astounding array of questions, as their own natural curiosity leads them towards STEM inquiry. Supporting and guiding this natural desire to explore STEM ideas and phenomena can have lasting benefits. In this webinar we’ll investigate how STEM teaching and learning in your own classroom can support young learners. We’ll explore connections between the STEM disciplines, examine the science & engineering, math, and literacy Practices, and look at some best practices that support STEM lessons.

Webinar: “E”ngineering in the STEM Classroom


The “E” in STEM can sometimes be scary for teachers as they begin to embrace STEM teaching and learning, but fear not! Engineering is all around us and in practically everything we do and the best part… students are naturally born engineers!  The National Research Council’s Framework for K-12 Science Education states, “Any science education that focuses predominately on the detailed products of scientific labor – the facts of science – without developing an understanding of how those facts were established or that ignores the many important applications of science in the world misrepresents science and marginalizes the importance of engineering.” In this webinar we’ll look at how students should learn how science is used through the engineering design process, and how they come to appreciate the distinctions and relationships between engineering, technology and applications of science.

Webinar: Developing Authentic Science Fair Research and Projects – grades 5-8


Participation in a science fair can be a very rewarding experience. It is the culmination of conducting research or testing designs and provides valuable feedback to students as they continue on in their STEM pursuits. Integrating the Science & Engineering Practices, found in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, can help engage students in scientific investigations while increasing conceptual understanding. In this 1-hour webinar we’ll look at interdisciplinary strategies to help build instruction that moves students beyond memorization, recall, and a basic level of knowledge to a much higher cognitive demand of problem solvers and critical thinkers where science fair projects are an authentic outcome that enhances student learning.

Webinar: Evaluating Instructional Materials for alignment to the AZCCRS –EQuIP ELA


An introduction to the EQuIP Rubric (Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products.) The Tri-State Collaborative (comprised of educational leaders from Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island) developed criterion-based rubrics and review processes to evaluate the quality of lessons and units intended to address the Common Core State Standards for ELA/Literacy and Mathematics. The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the rubric and its purposes: to provide clear, descriptive criteria for common core lessons/ units, to provide meaningful, constructive feedback to developers of lessons/units, identify lessons that can serve as models, and to provide a protocol for collegial review.  We will also cover the four dimensions and the criteria in each.

Webinar: Reading for the Rhetorical Situation


Reading for the rhetorical situation requires students to go much deeper than just identifying the main ideas.  Students need to focus simultaneously on the author’s purpose, the message/text, the context for writing, and the audience it is addressing.  It is not just what the text says, but how the text says it.  This webinar will review the elements of the rhetorical situation and provide some strategies for helping students increase their rhetorical reading comprehension.
